No mention of pre sale on the Merchbar site.

Couldn't resist. Preordered one after I already had purchased the mega bundle.

Thank for the tip, Georgia.

Pretty sure you mean do these come with pre-orders on the Foo Store - in which case the answer is no. These are special pressings for Spotify fans - only they got the original email. The band have set up one pressing in limited numbers (probably one or two thousand).

The band's store version appears to be the same as the standard release that is being sold everywhere else. Looks like all pre-orders even the deluxe sets, are getting that standard version.

'The Sky Is A Neighbourhood' more than likely to be the next single. As noticed via Reddit, when viewing 'Concrete and Gold' on iTunes, the timestamp is present for the song now.

Hope it comes soon. I'm getting impatient.

Not surprising that this is our next single as it seems very traditionally Foo-like on an album that doesn't look like it'll be traditional for these guys. Wish we were gonna get La Dee Da though, that thing sounds like it's gonna be killer.

Ahead of the next shows, not a lot new here but the interviewer has apparently heard the album since they give a couple (very brief) song descriptions I haven't heard.
"The new album, which is expected to be released in September, is an interesting mix of styles. There is the familiar rock stance that the Foo Fighters are famous for in the form lead single Run and Sky Is A Neighborhood, but the band ventures into more sonically diverse and dynamic territory with songs such as the harmony-filled Dirty Water, the acoustic guitar-led Happy Ever After (Zero Hour), the syncopated Arrows, with its time signature shifts, and the swampy Sunday Rain, which features drummer Hawkins on vocals. The album’s title track itself is a dirty, slow burn of a number that closes the album."

Other notable bits:

So what is the secret to their longevity?

“You can’t exactly put your finger on it, but I think a big part of it is that we never really stopped,” said Shiflett. “When you stop for too long, I think that tends to break bands up. I don’t know! I wish I knew what it was, but it’s an undefinable thing.”

... the video ended with the band saying: “For the millionth time, we’re not breaking up. And nobody’s going f***ing solo”.

“We’ve (announced a hiatus) in the past,” laughed Shiflett. “I think when you hear the Foo Fighters announce a hiatus, you can read between the lines ... that Dave is just tired of touring! That’s usually where that stems from!”

Apologies- I meant do these come with pre sale for tickets and I now know they don't.

I think “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” might be the new single. If you look up the album in iTunes, it’s the only song, besides “Run” l, that has a time duration. 4:04 minutes to be exact.

EDIT: should’ve looked better in this thread. It’s already been spotted out, silly me.

Wasn't Run released at 10 am est on a Thursday? I've noticed a lot of artists as of late have been debuting singles on Thursdays as well. Not sure why exactly but I've got my fingers crossed that The Sky is a Neighborhood is on the airwaves in the next few hours.

Yeah, they took my money when I ordered.

Had to get the black vinyl. It's a beautiful thing.

I think Dave is just amazed they have them in Japan.

Or Canadian tour dates.

Or an elaborate video at the rockies for the sky is a neighbourhood.
